where he was a contributory a book about physician aided killings. this america there is a lot of people that wrestle with care giving issues and serious illness. we should be encouraging people to have a hopeful vision. when a veteran comes back from aaq they shouldn't be given book like this. they should be encouraged to look at how to maintain their dignity. >> chris: in fairness, the book offers other ideas and statements for veterans to consider and let's put that on the screen. my life should be prolonged as long as it can no matter what its quality and using whatever means possible. and then i believe it is always wrong to with hold not starve treatments that could keep me alive. aren't both sides presented. >> there are lines like that in the book but a fair reading of the book and looking at the cases this they give as examples. the woman ha that's the stroke that says i don't want to live if i can't take care of myself. at the back of the book, the 2007 edition said go to the hemlock society. i think the bias of the document is clear. why would americans be given such a

on how they can maintain their dignity, because that's what i think america owes them. >> now, in fairness, the book also offers other ideas and statements for veterans to consider. let's put those on the screen. my life should be prolonged as long as it can no matter what its quality and using any means possible. and then there's this. i believe that it is always wrong to withhold, not start, treatments that could keep me alive. mr. towey, aren't both sides presented? >> there are lines like that in the book, but a fair reading of the book, just looking at the cases they give as examples, where the woman that has the stroke that says i don't want to live if i can't take care of myself and then when you look in the back of the book, chris, who do they refer you to? the 2007 edition said go to compassion choices. that's the hemlock society. the 1997 version referred you to an organization that was the american euthanasia society. i think the bias of the document's clear. why would americans be given such a poor document, a poor planning tool on a subject so important? >> we need to

i think what cheney was essentially saying was that president obama continues to take america off its war footing. it started after he got into office, announced he was going to close gitmo, move the terrorists out of military tribunals. you couldn't say war on terror. now this week two more decisions. one to possibly prosecute cia agents and two is this idea to form this nebulous interagency unit, run out of the white house, that's going to be in charge of interrogating high value detainees. all of these decisions are part of a continuum which is to take america off its war footing. it erects the walls between the fbi and cia which bush and cheney had torn down and rolls back the authority of the cia which is exactly the opposite of what the bush and cheney folks did in the wake of 9/11. >> mara, i want to go back to this question about the effectiveness of the enhanced interrogation. bill is right. the record is that khalid shaikh mohammed was not cooperative. he was water boarded 183 pounds. he started singing like a canary. can you draw conclusions? >> the thing that's impossi

approved health care. i mean, this is not the america we know. and the problem is not just with insurance. in fact, a lot of americans are happy with it. we need to do a lot of things to make it work better. but a government takeover is going to work just like the cash for clunkers program, chris. >> we're going to get to that as well. congressman rangel, please respond to that, about the high tax rate, the top tax rate in your plan as well as the fact that according to independent studies, 2/3 of small business profits would be hit by the surtax. >> 96% of small businesses would not be hurt by this tax. it's less than 1% of the wealthiest people in the united states that would be taxed and that's at a 1% tax. there's just no question that the way that they're talking about paying for it that they don't take in consideration the cap that we're going to have on premiums. they don't take into consideration the number of people that have no ins insuran now that can walk into any hospital, any doctor's office and be fully insured. they don't take the productivity of having a healthy

, president obama and his cabinet, have read the tea leaves of america right now. they see that the american people are basically satisfied with their health insurance. they like their programs. they know they could be improved, but they don't want a government-run program. >> you think, senator shelby, we need public co-ops at all? >> well, i think that's something we should look at. we already have some of those, something like them, nonprofits basically that seem to work. i don't know if it will do everything that people want, but we ought to look at it. i think it's a far cry from the original proposals. >> senator conrad, you have been one of the democrats critical of the public option and perhaps the leading democrat in pushing the idea of a public co-op. explain briefly why the co-op would not be a government takeover and perhaps the public option would. >> you know, chris, i was given the responsibility to try and come up with something that would bridge the differences between those who are very much for a public option and those who are very much opposed to it. and what i came up w

organize america to be criticizing citizens for being organized, frankly, the truth of the matter is we don't know who is organized and who isn't. the point. >> chris: the issue, the substance, need to deal with it and americans are concerned about it and i suspect, a lot of these people, chris are coming to these meetings, are elderly people who are concerned about half a trillion dollar cut in medicare to pay -- not to make medicare sustainable but to start a new program, for other citizens. >> let me show you and put up on the screen the town hall meetings, because they have been pretty impassioned. have from what you have seen and you haven't had any yet but, you certainly watched them on tv, have the protesters gone over the line and when you read that some organizers give people instructions, pack the halls and stand up and shout and rattle the members of congress, should they back off. >> look, i don't think either side ought to be trying to engage in disrupting meetings. either the democratic side or the republican side. we ought to focus on the issue. and to demonize citizens w

system in america and the debate us between the democrats honey american people now. and what we wanted mostly is to be able to put the bill itself on the internet and on the airwaves so the american people know what is in it. they know it will cut medicare, they know it will raise taxes, on the small businesses and create jobs and they know it will eliminate jobs across the country. >> chris: what do you think will end up happening as a result. >> what will happen is you will see americans take to the street in august, and go to their congressman's office and they'll go to town halls, and i think they will let congressmen and senators so they need to keep their hands off their health care. >> chris: congressman rangel, according to the polls, support for the president's health care reform plan is dropping. how worried are you, about what will happen this august, in terms of the battle to define health care reform? >> i'm not worried at all. the president polls we and the congress in this senate and this house we should have his numbers, in terms of that but i'm surprised at jim
